Microsoft Merges Exchange with Real-Time Communication Group

Exchange and the Real Time Messaging services have been this on-and-off couple for quite some time.

Originally released as part of Exchange 2000, and split up with the release of Exchange 2003 and Live Communications server, the internal real time messaging component continues to evolve. Now Microsoft merges the two messaging groups, probably in anticipation that the ways we communicate via mail and real time chat will merge or have a tighter integration in the future. For example, a unified Outlook Web Access and Web Communicator would be useful for, say, storing chat history in Outlook/Exchange.
